Encore South Bay, one of the theater production companies that I film for during the year, needed a highlight reel for their upcoming performances of “Mary Poppins” and “Seusical the Musical” coming respectively to the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center and Warner Grand in San Pedro this January. Following explicit editing instructions from Encore Owners Summer and Marcelo Cacciagioni, former wedding video clients of mine, I edited this promo destined to be shown in movie theaters around the South Bay before the shows in January. Enjoy!
With Color Correction Filters Applied
Raw, Uncorrected Image
Video footage is not always picture perfect right out of the gate. In this production, the blue stage lighting and my camera just didn’t play well together. However, with some discrete filtering in post the problem was corrected so that very natural-looking images were obtained. New Blue Saturation Modifier and Color Fast were used to normalize the color. I don’t think the parents of the child actors would’ve appreciated the blue blotchy color of the raw footage. This production of “ELF” was staged by Encore South Bay, Torrance, CA and is one of many annual productions I record for them. Upcoming productions include “Mary Poppins” at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in January and “Seusical The Musical” at the San Pedro Warner Grand, also in January. 24KT films about 20 plays a year for Encore.
